I used to enjoy this podcast but I can't stand to listen to it anymore. It was so much better when Virginia had a co-host. Since Jacob left, it hasn't been very good. Virginia's writing style is much better suited to print than podcasting. She is verbose. By the time she gets to the end of an...Read full review »

I listened to the October 18 podcast. The guest was good. The issue is that the host, Ms. Heffernan, repeated the word "yes" every few seconds in response to what the guest was saying. I started counting and stopped around 30 although there were many more after that. This verbal tic, if that's...Read full review »

Tonight I learned how to discuss politics with my wife. How to compare the current political situation to what it’s like to deal with a toddler. This might work! This isn’t a sexist statement. I’m the house manager.

Excellent discussion of 12 Angry Men and parallel to issues today!

As we are struggling in the Disunited Kingdom with populism and a failure of our unwritten constitution, a flawed monarchy and an unelected House of Lords as well as an overpowering executive and an atrocious media landscape owned by overseas moguls such as Murdoch a weekly dose of Virginia...Read full review »

How else can any US citizen make any sense of the insanity that we define as the presidency. Laughlin brings some respite from the fear mongering we are all exposed to. A breath of fresh air ( at least until the air becomes unbreathable due to presidential regulatory action). Always a diverse...Read full review »

This podcast is uneven depending on who the guests are. Mostly center-left with thoughtful considerations on current events. Just always run a background check on guests. More than once they’ve had lobbyists on as “informed experts.” It’s stuff like this that erodes honest journalism.

I find nothing charming nor bewitching

I live in Australia and blessed with ( until now) freedom from the craziness in the US and brexit. The warnings signs. The self care we need. Page88 has calmed my soul So love the monologues

This podcast provides necessary catharsis

I love you Virginia but really? The Mooch? Who cares what he has to say? What a blowhard! He hasn’t had any change of heart. He just loves to hear himself bloviate. What a douche! He had to school us on what’s wrong with the country? Ugh! Love the podcast but don’t give this guy a platform

Just listened to Virginia Heffernan’s discussion with Paul Waldman on the current administration’s various policies and their thoughts on Democratic candidates and highly recommend her podcast. I’m now going back to listen to her older podcasts -what a treasure trove! All episodes are...Read full review »

This used to be a pretty great and informative show, but it's going progressively downhill. I like Virginia and all, but I'm getting really tired of the man-hating... I thought this podcast was supposed to be about Trump? If I wanted to listen to a social justice, man-hating podcast, I would do...Read full review »

UK listener. I often lose faith in our big boisterous cousin the USA. Tommy and Ben (and millions of other Americans I assume) are smart and engaged in the world. I also always enjoy their take on Brexit as it spot on. This revived my faith in all the great things about the USA. Anyway Trump...Read full review »

Trump is doing a great job
trumpstur via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/25/19
This used to be one of my favorite podcasts. It began as a funny and enjoyable podcast that explored many concerning issues with the Trump administration with a sense of perspective. It made me laugh and made me think. It acted like a vaccine against Trump Derangement Syndrome. Now it largely...Read full review »

this woman and her colleagues represent the most clearheaded no-BS voices available such talent. such insight. such style
tom rad via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/19/19
This is a decent podcast but the Trump impersonations are so annoying I’ve pretty much had to stop listening.
Jccady via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/17/19
So you turned democrat but only got political a year after you voted for trump. Dumb, forgetful, or LIAR??

I love the show but even following instructions I can't access Slate Plus Trumpcast episodes (yes I am a member) their app doesn't work, I can't even search for it. Why am I paying for it?

I never miss a Trumpcast. I’m learning so much. And I appreciate the intellectual caliber of the conversations. Virginia, I love you!

False Coherence and White Terrorism has ended my constant searching to understand what has happened to U.S. I got it now. This has been my favorite podcast for a long time anyway but it needs a much bigger reach. We can't afford stupid anymore. Trumpcast is the antidote.

If I hear these two shrill voices shriek “stupid” without providing any objective truth, I’ll start screaming.
Ohio Bell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
Originally, this podcast content was a more self-aware dialogue on the Trump administration’s self-dealing and its disassociation with facts. Since Virginia became the primary host, the quality of the content of the podcast has steadily declined. I don’t know if this by design from the host,...Read full review »

Virginia’s July intro laying the historic case got Donald Trump’s racism is deeply incisive and dispositive. This is a great podcast. I enjoy the topics and the attitude.
PerryBorenstein via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
An excellent podcast for those who need refuge from the Liar in Chief.
FilmsforLife via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/19
Can’t say that it’s worthwhile anymore as there are better sources for day old news on the tRUMP nightmare. Also resent the new two tier, pay or piss off attempt to reimagine the genre.

Interesting interviews on captivating subjects with a touch of humor. I like to listen to your podcast on the run....literally running...not errand running...exercise running!
AdairaB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/19
Garbage podcast that shows evidence of Trump Derangement Syndrome that is affecting millions of antifa wannabes across the country.
Allzoomedin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/19
Nice job on this interview. You stepped out of the way, which really made a difference.
Sophie Majeski via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
Trumpcast is the official podcast of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
TheBago via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/19
This was a great podcast when Jacob Weinberg started it. Since he left Hefferman has fallen in love with mean spirited sophomoric monologues. Monk (?) is solid but the other hosts are a kneejerk and not truly thoughtful about US politics. They have become an eco chamber - utterly predictable and...Read full review »

The conversation with E. Jean Carroll was fantastic. This podcast is consistently excellent.

Yasha is hard to understand. Nothing personal but it’s a podcast.... if you can’t take in the info of the host ...it doesn’t matter how good you think he is. Pod went downhill after paywall.

This is the best and most important Trumpcast episode of all the hundreds I’ve listened to. Thank you. Challenging, insightful, truth-telling.
roshart via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/11/19
I can’t take it anymore. I’m a Democrat, for sure. I bleed blue, in deep-red Texas. But enough is enough. I understand that trump is the the titular subject and always will be. But enough is enough. You can hear the obsession in Virginia’s voice, now. It’s unhealthy. Yes, I’m aware that what...Read full review »

All the way from Zealand. This is grotesque. Love the pod

I give up. I subscribe to Slate and have copied and pasted the link multiple times in the Apple podcast ap and always get ‘result not found.” Sick of listening to the teaser and asked to subscribe for more when I have for years.
Judy in Ohio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/19
I enjoy listing to this very left leaning podcast...Myself being more conservative it is refreshing to listen to Trumpcast to get the other side of things. Keep up the good work.

Seriously? The best you can do for sponsorship is flogging dead meat???!!! Call me a veggie-snowflake but it’s just appallingly gross. I expect better, you can do better, tramp is gross enough, why add to it??? Sponsor Fail.
